16 Days of Street Food at The Rye, Peckham

May 16, 2011


The Rye Street Food

Starting tonight, Eat. St will be kicking off the London summer of street food excitement at The Rye pub in association with the Meatwagon. As of June 1st, The Meatwagon will be serving their burgers and other things that made me put on so much weight recently but until that date, it’s a 16 day street food bonanza with a different hawker every day. These will include some of my favourites such as Angus a.k.a Mongo Denoon and The OK Catering Success (Kolkata street food) and Cooper, a.k.a The Dogfather.

If you’re not familiar with Eat.St, then listen up. I’ll step aside and let the woman behind it, Petra Barran, do the talking,

“Eat. St is driving British street food forward, helping to change the foodscape of London through flavour driven, personality driven curbside cuisine. We are about transforming urban spaces into convivial places – giving London’s food culture a bit of SWAG and picking up the food hawking traditions that London lost to licensing laws last century.

This is London style street food, revolting against the bland, the spoon-fed and the choreographed. Eating in the open air brings out a new side to the London experience and it tastes good!

We are thrilled that The Rye is hosting us – they know a good thing when they eat it.”

As Scott from Capital Pubs (now running The Rye) quite rightly teased me on Twitter, this probably marks the end of PROJECT BIKINI (my diet) as the pub is a 30 second walk from my house. What a way to go out though, eh? Peckham just gets better and better…

    For just a moment there I read that as Meatwagon AND Kolkata at the Rye tonight. Two of my favourites in the same place ?

    Shame it’s not to be but I might still come down to try some of Angus’s totally delicious food.

    Ah, this looks amazing! I’m in London next tuesday and will be at a loose end around lunchtime. I’m definitely going to get myself to Peckham. Is there a Week Two schedule yet?
